The judging for this year’s awards was a two-step process involving design professionals in Westchester County and New York City. A nominating committee composed of Phyllis Harbinger, president, ASID NY Metro Chapter, and principal, Design Concepts/Interiors, LLC; Kim Freeman of Kim Freeman Style & Design; Jacqueline Hosford of Jacqueline Hosford Interior Design, LLC, and past president, ASID NY Metro Chapter; John D. Fry, AIA LEED AP, president, AIA Westchester and Hudson Valley, and Raymond Beeler, AIA president, New York State, and principal, Gallin Beeler Design Studio, reviewed all submissions and narrowed the selection down to the top 21 finalists. These finalists were then reviewed by a panel of faculty members from the New York School of Interior Design including Veronica Whitlock, Margaret Minz, Don Kossar, and John Buscarello, who selected the winners in each category.

Westchester Home’s Design Awards were sponsored by Best Plumbing Tile and Stone, Bilotta Kitchens, California Closets, Consolidated Plumbing Supply, Klaff’s, and Majestic Kitchens and Baths.
